Anyone with an Aruba installation using their VPN solution - VIA? Which platforms? If so, what is your honest opinion? We currently use an SSL/VPN solution as well as RAP-2's. Both have their good points and bad.

We have VIA running on a 3600 controller and have been experimenting with it for a few months. So far it's been working very well. It's not as convenient as our java/web-based anyconnect VPN, but we've been having problems with users and java and such with the Cisco version. Once installed, via has been very stable for the users. (windows , Mac and iOS all work very well) One thing to keep in mind, is that the VIA client only works with a wireless connection. At least we haven't been able to get it to work on a wired workstation. So if you have remote users on desktops, you'll still need a separate solution. Sent via iPhone

We recently deployed a mix of RAP-2’s and RAP-5WN’s in a split-tunnel configuration. Our users have been very satisfied with this solution. Our next step will be VIA this summer.
